Many have argued that Pogba isn’t worth the insane price tag placed on his services by Juventus but by the looks of things Jose Mourinho seems to think otherwise.
Mourinho is a smart man when it comes to signings, although it’s no secret that he’s made a couple of mistakes in he past regarding player transfers.
Pogba’s move to United has been the highlight of the transfer window with the proposed deal still being plagued by uncertainty; until now of course with the club confirming that he’s set to undergo his medical.
Pogba has been a mainstay in the Old Lady’s lineup ever since he arrived at Turin from Manchester, and now that he’s set to return home as #Pogback greatly implies, the French midfielder is expected to take on a key role in the heart of United’s midfield.
Personal terms between Pogba and Manchester United are yet to be agreed upon, but the deal is set to be concluded by mid-week with both parties keen on completing the move as soon as possible.
Pogba will be Mourinho’s fourth signing in the window following the arrivals of Ibrahimovic, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Eric Bailly.
Here are some twitter reactions;
Imagine celebrating the fact that you sold a player for £800,000, waited a few years, and then bought him back for £100,000,000. #Pogback
